I had an urgent need to get headshots done for a website. He was super responsive via messaging and came to my home within an hour! Not only that but he turned the photos immediately and I had digital access within a couple hours. He was efficient, had immense attention to detail and great suggestions to get things done right.Oct 30, 2017Verified

Thank you Avant-Garde for capturing the most important parts of our event!!! Not only was our engagement beautifully photographed, the little details that most photographers leave out were not missed. His pricing is very fair and affordable. I have him booked for my upcoming wedding in May as well.Dec 20, 2016
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing could seem complicated with photographers: there are many variables to consider to better understand how photographers charge. For my part, it's mainly based on the amount of time a project requires and the level of details/stress/attention needed. The best way to determine pricing for your project is to have a live conversation and discuss it together.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My preference would be to set a face to face meeting to discuss client's needs and give me an opportunity to present my work. Then, it comes down to tailoring my services to the client's needs through a quote/proposal. Once we agree upon that, a written contract is executed to ensure everything is documented. Because of distance and timing, it may not always be easy to meet...which is fine with me, I have been booked via text message and emails then met clients the day of their photo session. I can adapt and I'm equipped to handle everything from my dear smartphone ;-)
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I learned photography at a young age on my father's 35mm cameras. He was a photographer and introduced me to the basic settings and basic principles of lighting when I was 10. It wasn't until I became a father myself that I started practicing taking pictures daily on our first baby girl. I relied on a couple books but mainly on tutorials I found online to progress and master some techniques. The learning of the fundamentals of photography coupled with a lot of practice (A LOT) helped me achieve a level reasonable enough to quit my day job and become a full time photographer.
